The NJ Coalition for Education and Positive Choices has become well known in Morris County for the many initiatives they have introduced and the facts and information they have supplied to the public in the fight against drug and alcohol abuse. The Coalition supports introducing kids to new activities and promoting substance-free events because these are means to uphold a child’s self-esteem. The Coalition is a pro-active team comprised of elected officials, law enforcement, educational leaders, and concerned citizens who are up to date on the latest crazes and abuses that are plaguing our children.
Please join officers and police departments from all over the state at the Coalition’s Annual Law Enforcement Night. It is at this event that youngsters get to see firsthand how law enforcement officers are positive influences in our community. Law Enforcement Night has been known to introduce and further develop these relationships often providing career opportunities for teens who might not have ever considered such a path. Too often we only interact with law enforcers and first responders on our worst day. This is a great opportunity to interact with our law enforcement officers and first responders on a very good day.
The equipment on display at this event is known to even awe adults. Never will one see such an array of machinery like this at one location. Kids can see the Morris County Hope Van, peruse ambulances, and emergency vehicles of every shape and size, wear riot gear, try on handcuffs, and co-mingle with the law enforcement community in a fun atmosphere.
The important aspect to remember here is that law enforcement is trained to make these kids feel safe and important. Confidence and self-esteem go a long way in helping a child say no to his peers when the time arises.
